H.R. 3030: Elie Wiesel Genocide and Atrocities Prevention Act of 2017

Jul 17, 2018 at 6:48 p.m. ET. On Motion to Suspend the Rules and Pass, as Amended in the House.

This was a vote to pass H.R. 3030 (115th) in the House. This vote was taken under a House procedure called “suspension of the rules” which is typically used to pass non-controversial bills. Votes under suspension require a 2/3rds majority. A failed vote under suspension can be taken again.

H.R. 3030 would establish that it shall be the policy of the United States to regard the prevention of genocide as a core national security interest and would specifically: affirm the importance of coordinating U.S. government actions to prevent genocide and mass atrocities; mandate training of U.S. Foreign Service Officers in atrocities prevention; and require an annual report to Congress on administration actions to prevent and respond to potential genocides and mass atrocities, and the identification of countries at risk of such genocide or mass violence.
